Upcoming Insurance Free Seminar in Miami: How do we understand General Average?

24152409 - container ship awreck on the beach

The law of general average is a legal principle of maritime law according to which all parties in a sea venture proportionally share any losses resulting from a voluntary sacrifice of part of the ship or cargo to save the whole in an emergency (for instance, when the crew throws some cargo overboard to lighten the ship in a storm). General Averages are greatly misunderstood and complicated to adjust. This presentation will provide some clarity into this interesting subject.

Please join us in congratulating Mr. McQuattie for his 44 years in the insurance industry and his 25th Anniversary at AIG!
